FOOTBALL - Rugby Town boss Adams feels team have 'turned a corner' after Shepshed win

Rugby Editorial 15th Nov, 2023 Updated: 15th Nov, 2023   0

CARL Adams believes his Rugby Town side have ‘turned a corner’ following their win at Shepshed Dynamo last weekend.

Valley claimed back-to-back league victories for the first time this season as Silvano Obeng and Jordan Wilson found the net in a 2-1 success at the Dovecote Stadium.

And Adams hopes to move further clear of the Northern Premier League Midlands relegation zone ahead of a crunch clash against Boldmere St Michaels this weekend.

Adams said: “It’s a massive game for both teams. It gives us a chance to put proper daylight between us and them, and also continue our steady progress up the table.

“It seems we’ve turned a bit of a corner, and I think we’re starting to show other teams and our supporters what we’re capable of.

“We have a number of players out there now that offer us a genuine goal threat, and we’ve also defended solidly.

“Alongside the upturn in performances, I guess you could also argue that we’ve had a little more luck of late.

“Shepshed hit the bar late on and the deflection for Jordan’s winner was fortunate, but we’ve been on the wrong end of things like that plenty of times ourselves already this season.”

Rugby host Boldmere on Saturday, November 18 with kick-off at 3pm at Butlin Road.
